Why raw food? The phytonutrients in fruits and veggies are essential to our bodies. They help our immune systems fight colds and cancer. I could go on but I'd rather let the experts do the talking.

I'm going to try my best to share at least 1 raw food recipe every Friday and I encourage you to try it out and share your own recipes.
|I love Kale!|
from Diana Stobo
1 bunch lacinato (dinosaur) kale
1/4 cup nutritional Yeast (optional substitute for cheese)
3/4 cup pecans (I used sunflower seeds)
½ teaspoon sea salt
zest of 1/2 lemon
1 tablespoon lemon juice, freshly squeezed
1 clove garlic, grated
¼ cup cold pressed olive oil
Remove stems from kale. In a food processor fitted with an s-blade, add the Kale, nutritional yeast, pecans, salt, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, and garlic. Process until coarsely chopped. Slowly add olive oil and pulse to incorporate. Taste for salt and add more oil if it is too dry. This should not be an oily pesto, only add enough oil so it is moist. Toss with a zucchini Pasta (or raw veggies), use as a raw pizza base or as a delicious dip.
